Hi everyone. "Seasons change and so do I" is a familiar lyric. It's true with love and it's true with poetry websites. Effective immediately, I am shutting down the ning.com section of Post-Poetry MFA. The monthly cost of maintaining it is not commensurate with its use. Besides, after 4 years, it seems that we have all moved on to other ways of maintaining our connections and support as writers.
I will continue to maintain this blog under the same name. The community web-page, however, will no longer be operative.
Stay tuned for more regular updates on this blog, and thanks for four years of sharing.
